Fun Fountain by Wham-O (Commercial, 1980)

Here's a commercial for the Fun Fountain by Wham-O - the clown with a hat that rises up on a stream of water.

One of our neighbors on our block had this - it was fun, but man that clown hat sure hurt when it fell back down on you!

This aired on local Chicago TV on Tuesday June 3rd 1980 between 3 and 4pm! (1979 Copyright)

I had this as a kid and also something by Wham-o called Willie Waterbug. He had plastic tubes that whipped around on top of his head and they hurt!

I had one of these too. It used to be funny seeing one of my friends get nailed in the head with the hat if they stood over the stream too long.

smctopia-- Thank you!! I had Willie Waterbug and he hurt like the dickens! It was one of my first experiences of, "This isn't as fun as it was in the ad!"

I used to have one of these too, back when I was about 2 or 3, although I didn't use it much in the summer times.

Was that pilot they're talking to high? What was the matter with him?

It used a red/white/blue motif. That wouldn't do today, too offensive. Now it would be pink, cream and aqua, with a vegan represented just so no one feels left out.

So much better than Ving Rhames bellowing "AW-Bee's! We have duh Meats!"

I miss those big cans of Hi-C Citrus Cooler - it was the perfect drink to go with brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts.

Where do you guys think you're going? Have some beer before you go out driving on those dark, icy roads!

Why, I like music. Especially "good ones." I think I'll give this musical radio station a try.
